AT&T launched the Captivate (below), its Samsung Galaxy S variant, on Sunday, as scheduled. With that, it was the third launch of a hot Android device since Thursday.  Indeed, Thursday was a day with a twin set of Android device launches.  On Thursday, Verizon launched the Motorola Droid X, while T-Mobile simultaneously launched the Vibrant, its own Samsung Galaxy S variant.
